Digital Vision: We are a small school but the world is here! Our vision is for all learners to use technology to access deep thinking consistently across their subjects, develop confidence in our Golden Skills and to apply their learning and skills in unfamiliar and ‘real world’ contexts with confidence and success.

We have embedded the 1:1 iPad devices into school life – lessons, assemblies and extra-curricular activities – in a meaningful ways to meet our vision. We aim to foster deep thinking through a focus on empowering learning – learners really understanding themselves as learners.

Here are some further examples linked to some of our Golden Skills.
